I’ve never watched the movie E.T.  I’ve never wanted to watch it.  The idea of an alien landing in your backyard and then taking it inside and feeding it is truly a strange concept for me to grasp.  It really is.  If an alien landed in my backyard, I promise, there would be no sharing of my candy or home…at all.  Not to mention…E.T. is an ugly little creature.  That thing is just not cute at all.  It looks like a dried up prune!  And seriously…it’s finger glows!  Strange!

I left to go pay a bill at lunch and listened as a guy on the radio talked about this movie.  God snapped His fingers at me and I realized…I had something in common with this ugly little alien.  “E.T. phone home”…the alien repeats…  He had an overwhelming desire to go home.  I laughed at myself when I realized that me and E.T. weren’t so different after all…because I don’t desire to stay here either…this isn’t my home.  I’m just passing though.  I desire to go and be with my Father.

“For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” -Hebrews 11:10.
People look at me a little differently than some.  I’ve been called peculiar a time or two.  But that is what I’m suppose to be.  1 Peter 2:9 tells me that I am called to be peculiar…so I feel I’m just living up to my expectation.  I would rather be labeled peculiar than to fit in with a world that will surely fade away.
So…call me an alien….peculiar…different….it doesn’t matter.  As long as I’m called a child of God…than I’ll gladly live in my peculiar world.
